The Unfiltered Lessons of a Female Entrepreneur with Victoria Brown

About This Event

Women today are starting more businesses than men, but they face a playing field that is not always fair, predictable, or politically correct. Per Visa’s 2020 State of Female Entrepreneurship report, while 79% of female entrepreneurs in the U.S. say they feel more empowered than they did five years ago, nearly 70% still report difficulty in obtaining the funding they need to succeed. In 2018, female founders received only 2.2% of US venture capital, and women led only 24 of the Fortune 500 companies. Starting a business is tough. Join us as we chat with Victoria Montgomery-Brown, CEO, Co-Founder Big Think as she digs deep to share her story about starting the company, offering aspiring entrepreneurs a candid, compelling, and practical guide to building a business from the ground up.
